MSI launches its first notebook, 10 new models to come

Micro-Star International (MSI), a leading Taiwanese motherboard maker, has officially launched its first Wi-Fi notebook, the M3000. The M3000, which was unveiled at the recently concluded 2004 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, is based on Intel's Centrino platform and features a 15-inch screen, ATI Technologies Mobility Radeon 9600 graphics chip and support for IEEE 1394, USB 2.0 and Wi-Fi connectivity.

The model may also be made with a modularized chassis, to allow shipments of barebones that can be configured close to the end-users, company sources said. The company has started manufacturing the M3000 in small volumes for the retail market in China, the sources said.

MSI plans to launch more than 10 notebook models in 2004, including 12-inch slim types in the second quarter, the sources added. At CES, the company also showcased its new multimedia barebone system, the MSI Mega 865. "Mega" stands for MSI entertainment gaming appliance. The Mega 865, which features a Pentium 4 processor and supports dual-channel DDR400 memory, combines the functions of a Hi-Fi stereo, DVD/VCD player, MP3 player, TV and PC.
